It’s week two of the Super League Playoffs and lets hope this weekend we see a game or two that isn’t over by halftime.
I don’t think any of the teams that will play thios weekend really have a chance of winning the Grand Final. Leeds might once again come home with a wet sail but the rest of them I’m ready to put a red pen through.
So, lets have a look at the two games this weekend and who I think will win both games!
Warrington Wolves vs Hull FC
Warrington got taught a lesson last week by St Helens and now, at home, they face a Hull FC team that has a bit of confidence after putting a big score up against the Huddersfield Giants.
I don’t think there will be too many confident Wire fans going around heading into this game. They have choked so many times in the Super League Playoffs that their fan base knowns not to get their hopes up at this point of the year.
Hull FC looked good last week but they beat no one. Still the confidence they got from that performance should count for something. I haven’t rated Hull FC at all this season. The supporter base had high hopes throughout this season but they just look terrible against the better teams in the competition.
Warrington really should put Hull out of their misery early in this one. If they don’t, and they lose this match at home, there are a few people within the club they need to get rid of. Dare I say it, with Tony Smith struggling to leave the clubs and find a job anywhere in the Australian game, he might be the first to go. My Tip: Wire by 26.
Catalan Dragons vs Leeds Rhinos
The Dragons are a very different team at home but facing the defending Super League Champions is not going to be an easy task.
The Dragons were terrible last week. They were never in the contest with Wigan. They need a huge turn around in the space of a week to even look like they have a chance of winning this game.
As for Leeds, they have so much experience in their side, they won’t be too phased by having to travel to France for this game. They really should come away with a win in this game and I would suggest that unless they pick up some major injury problems, they won’t be the team Wigan will be chosing to play next weekend.
I think this will be a high scoring game, but close than all of the games we have seen so far in the Super League Playoffs. My Tip: Rhinos by 8.
